Saying goodbye to Stephen Junior's Hero

With all this news about Iran, Letterman, and the health care debate, this information almost escaped my notice, but I was looking for it. From FoxNews in D.C.:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The funeral for the special police officer killed in a shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in D.C. will take place on Friday, June 19, officials said on Monday.

Officer Stephen Johns will be laid to rest on Friday at Emmanuel Baptist Church, which is located at 2409 Ainger Place in Southeast Washington. The viewing will begin at 10 a.m. and the funeral will follow.

Officials said that in honor of Officer Johns, the museum will be closed until 3 p.m. Friday to allow everyone who wishes to attend to be able to do so. The museum will reopen on Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. to accommodate visitors.
